The Jeep Cherokee facelift has been spied testing prior to its 2018 debut.
The Jeep Cherokee is due for a mid-cycle facelift and is expected to be launched in 2018. Test mules of the updated vehicle have been spotted testing in America and the images reveal a significant amount of the car as it sports minimal camouflage.
While the overall shape remains the same, the new Cherokee seems to have some quite unusual features. While the old one had split head lamps with accent lights on top as the DRLs, the main square headlamp units were mounted low down on the front bumper. The test mule which has been spotted, has sensors in its place instead. This could mean, that the new Cherokee will not feature split head lamps, as the main head lamps may have been integrated into the accent lights itself. But we will have to wait for further details on this account.
On the inside, the updated Cherokee will get an updated infotainment system along with some minor changes to the interior as well. The new Cherokee is likely to have FCA’s the latest generation infotainment system which would feature more modern connectivity features.
Mechanically, the Cherokee facelift will most probably feature the existing line of engines and gearboxes. It is also reported that Jeep may also be working on a sportier version of the smaller Cherokee, inspired by the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, though it has not been officially confirmed.
